Deputy Mike Winter

Quincy, Michigan – A Sheriff Deputy with the Branch County Sheriff Department has died following an accident Monday.  Deputy Mike Winter, age 39, was riding in a Memorial Day parade when tragedy struck.  A noise scared his horse, which bucked violently, throwing Winter to the ground.  Deputy Winter struck his head on the pavement and suffered serious injury.

A nearby nurse rendered emergency aid until paramedics arrived and transported him to Parkview Health hospital.  His condition was originally classified as serious, but Tuesday he succumbed to his injuries and passed away.

Donations for Winter’s family are being accepting at the Branch County Sheriff Department.
